Mauro Icardi parla della sua nuova avventura a Parigi ma non dimentica l’Inter: “Gli auguro il meglio, possono vincere lo Scudetto”.
Inter have taken to social media to showcase the treacherous conditions that the players trained in on Tuesday as they continued their preparations for this weekend’s first match back after the international break against Sassuolo.
The depleted Nerazzurri side, who are still missing several players due to them being on international duty, can be seen training in foggy conditions and torrential rain at the Angelo Moratti Sports Centre in the video that the club posted to their official club Twitter account.
“Whatever the weather,” the club captioned the video which can be seen down below.

Rodrigo de Paul has penned a contract extension with Udinese, a move that will almost certainly spell the end to the recent transfer speculation concerning the player.
The versatile Argentine has extended his contract with the Bianconeri club through to the end of the 2023/24 season and this will come as a blow to some clubs who had shown an interest in signing him in recent months, with Inter being one of those sides to have drawn heavy links to him.
This season the 25-year-old has made five appearances across all competitions, in which he has contributed two assists.

In an official UEFA statement, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has reiterated that there is no place for racism in football and that they are doing all they can to try and eradicate it from the game.
There have been a series of racist incidents in recent weeks and months across European football with the most recent high-profile incident occurring during England’s 6-0 UEFA EURO 2020 qualifier away to Belgium.
Inter player Romelu Lukaku has also been a victim of racist abuse recently as have several other players currently plying their trade in Serie A.
“There were times, not long ago, when the football family thought that the scourge of racism was a distant memory. The last couple of years have taught us that such thinking was, at best, complacent. The rise of nationalism across the continent has fuelled some unacceptable behaviour and some have taken it upon themselves to think that a football crowd is the right place to give voice to their appalling views,” it begins.
“As a governing body, I know we are not going to win any popularity contests. But some of the views expressed about UEFA’s approach to fighting racism have been a long way off the mark. UEFA, in close cooperation with the FARE network (Football Against Racism Europe), instituted the three-stage protocol for identifying and tackling racist behaviour during games.
“UEFA’s sanctions are among the toughest in sport for clubs and associations whose supporters are racist at our matches. The minimum sanction is a partial closure of the stadium – a move which costs the hosts at least hundreds of thousands in lost revenue and attaches a stigma to their supporters.
“UEFA is the only football body to ban a player for ten matches for racist behaviour – the most severe punishment level in the game. Believe me, UEFA is committed to doing everything it can to eliminate this disease from football. We cannot afford to be content with this; we must always strive to strengthen our resolve.
The statement, which was posted to UEFA’s official website, concludes: “More broadly, the football family – everyone from administrators to players, coaches and fans – needs to work with governments and NGOs to wage war on the racists and to marginalise their abhorrent views to the fringes of society. Football associations themselves cannot solve this problem. Governments too need to do more in this area. Only by working together in the name of decency and honour will we make progress.”

Journalist Fabrizio Biasin believes Inter will make moves in the upcoming January transfer window to plug the gaps that have become apparent in recent weeks that have only been further added to by injuries over the international break.
“They will surely do something but sitting here and saying that if they do not sign a great midfielder they are not going anywhere is easy,” he said in an interview with Radio Sportiva.
He then excluded the possibility of pending free agent Zlatan Ibrahimovic returning to the Nerazzurri, where he previously spent three seasons between 2006 and 2009, in which he scored 57 goals in 88 league appearances.
“He is a phenomenon, but a club that has a serious plan like Inter does know that they do not want to fall back on a 38-year-old player. I do not think that he is in the plans of any Serie A team.”
The Swede is due to leave MLS outfit LA Galaxy when his contract expires at the end of this year and some reports in the media have linked him with a return to Manchester United.

Inter will stop teen sensation Sebastiano Esposito from going to the under 17 World Cup with Italy as a result of Alexis Sanchez’s injury according to a report from Gazzetta.it.
The Nerazzurri’s medical staff conducted tests on Alexis Sanchez earlier today and confirmed the intial diagnosis given by the Chilean national team medical staff.
The 30-year-old, who joined Inter on a season long loan from Premier League club Manchester United in the Summer, is due to see a specialist tomorrow in Barcelona who will determine whether the injury he has sustained will require surgery.
Reports to have done the rounds in the media as of late suggest Sanchez is facing a few months out on the sidelines and because of this Inter simply cannot afford to let Esposito go to the under 17 World Cup due to the fact it would leave them even shorter in attack for a number of weeks.

Former Inter striker Alessandro Altobelli has shared his views on the ongoing debate relating to the future of San Siro with Inter and AC Milan both planning on vacating the stadium for a new stadium in the coming years.
“I am all for modern things. San Siro is an old stadium, Inter and Milan want a new stadium, let them do it, but they cannot touch San Siro. By knocking down the stadium, they would bring people down with it,” Altobelli said in an interview with radio station TMW Radio.
“How could they tear La Scala down? History cannot be touched. I agree that the Meazza can be renovated. We must put it back in its place, that’s for sure, but I don’t see the disaster that others see.”
He was then asked for his thoughts on the progress Inter have made in such a short time under the tutelage of Antonio Conte.
“Juve is ahead as a project, as shown by the titles that they have won. Inter had Icardi, Perisic, Nainggolan, but we know that we had to give up this project with them. Now another serious one was born, which I think needs more time.
“Antonio Conte is here whilst Oriali is back too. The gap has shortened. Inter have some cards that they can play and they are certainly the rival of Juventus and Napoli.”

Olivier Giroud has threatened that if his playing situation does not change at Chelsea then he could be forced into having to leave the club in the upcoming January transfer window.
The Frenchman has been limited to just 191 minutes this season and has drawn links to several clubs in advance of the window opening on January 1 including Inter, who are on the look-out for a new striker with it looking likely that they will have to do without Alexis Sanchez for several months.
“I am 33, I still have the legs legs and I have a body that will allow me to play a few more years. I have a healthy lifestyle and I feel good physically,” he told the gathered media following France’s EURO 2020 qualifier draw with Turkey.
“I want to have fun and play more games. Chelsea is my priority but afterwards if in the end I am forced to make a choice, I will do it, like I did when I left Arsenal.”
